On the subject of recovery, using supplements like BCAAS (Branch Chain Amino Acids), EAAs (Essential Amino Acids) and L-Glutamine are all very important in my opinion. Each supplement has their own merits which qualify them as top quality ‘recovery’ supplements. However, Millennium Sport Technologies have a product called RPG, and it consists of all of the above ingredients in ONE! Therefore, on the surface it would appear RPG could potentially be the ultimate recovery supplement for an athlete, let’s find out more!
The BCAA content of Millennium Sport Technologies RPG is of the highest standard and it is also unlike a lot of other BCAA products out there at the moment. The main differentiation is that MSTs trademarked Ajipure Amino matrix is not fermented and they do not originate from human hair, like a lot of others do. ‘‘OK that’s great’’ I hear you say, ‘’but that means what exactly?’’ Well because the Ajipure Aminos are NOT fermented, it basically means that they maintain a more ‘natural’ state and therefore they are thought to be more effective this way! As a general point of view, BCAAs as a general supplement category promote the recovery of muscle tissue by providing ‘building blocks’ during the process of muscle hypertrophy. In my opinion, any athlete who trains hard should use a form of BCAA supplement!
As part of the Ajipure Aminos formula, MST have included EAAs as well unlike a lot of other BCAA formulas. The reason behind this is that extensive research has shown that BCAAs taken with EAAs are able to have a more significant impact on the athlete’s rate of recovery and growth. In short, EAAs are present in RPG in order to enhance the effects of the BCAA content and, to provide a broader foundation for your muscles to recover.
One of the amino acid components of RPG is of course Glutamine. Whilst an entire range of amino acids is vital, Glutamine is certainly a ‘stand out’ ingredient. Combined with other EAAs and BCAAs, Glutamine has shown itself to have a massive impact on the rate of recuperation and recovery for athletes. It is mainly known for its ability to stimulate protein synthesis in the muscle tissue, thus leading to enhanced recovery!
MST have very cleverly added a range of antioxidants, sourced from whole foods, which play a vital role in the recovery and protection phase! ‘Free Radicals’ in your blood are known to have the capacity to cause harm, promote catabolism, suppress your immune function and even act as the stimulus for serious diseases! Fortunately, antioxidants are like a ‘night in shining armour’ because they actively help neutralise these harmful ‘free radicals’ on your blood!
Each ingredient of MST RPG is excellent, and I genuinely believe they are equally important. However, the beauty is with this product MST have taken the time and trouble to find the perfect balance, making it a very precise formula. RPG actually stands for ‘Recover, Protect and Grow’ and that is precisely what this supplement will help you achieve!
If I was in the market for an ‘all in one’ supplement to aid recovery and fight catabolism, this would probably be my first choice! Any athlete from any background can benefit from this supplement, whether you are a boxer or golfer!
